Iranian filmmaker Asghar Farhadi, who has won two Oscars for his films “A Separation” and “The Salesman,” may find himself with a third.
His latest film “A Hero,” which is currently streaming on Amazon Prime Video, is among the 15 films shortlisted for best international feature and a likely candidate to make the final five when nominations are revealed on Feb. 8. Farhadi is appreciative that the Oscar conversation gives his film a bigger audience and spotlight.
But representing Iran can be fraught sometimes. Still he hopes he can continue making films in his home country, he said.
